dc.descriptionIreland is facing an obesity epidemic. To combat this, the Irish HSE advocates a multifaceted approach to weight loss: emphasizing increased exercise; decreased fat intake; increased carbohydrate, vegetable, and fruit consumption; and, if necessary, pharmaceutical intervention with Orlistat. Despite the Irish government’s best intentions, new research is coming to light that implicates a low fat, high carbohydrate diet coupled with exercise and Orlistat is not the best way to obtain sustained weight loss. Rather, a low carbohydrate, high fat ketogenic diet yields much more promising, sustained results.en
